Fiio e7 vs ?????

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi! I am looking for an portable amp for my AKG K550. At the moment is it driven mostly by my iPad and my phone (sometimes an Old Harman Kardon avr 5000 When home). So i want an amp in the price range of the fiio e7. Hopefully one who is thiner and instead is longer/wider (hopes is understand able). Also the fiio E6 seemes good because of its size, is the e7 much better?
Thanks for your time

The e7 has a DAC and an amp. If you don't need the DAC functionality you might be better off spending the same amount of money for something that is just an amp. I have an e7 and I don't have any issues with it nor do I have anything else to compare it to but I keep reading about how there are other amps, DACs, or amp/DAC combos that have better sound or more power so I'm constantly on the fence about getting something else. However, I need the DAC piece too.

They use a standard Nokia BL5B battery, get a better one off eBay, then replace it. The back cover of the amp comes off, easy as that.
